Chinese Railroad Worker History

From: "Mary Rich"

I am taking a History of Sacramento class through Pacific Fresno University. I am trying to determine how many Chinese died when building the Transcontinental Railroad and am having a hard time finding the information. Any help you can give would be appreciated.

I am not sure this is on point, but found it of interest pertaining to the number of deaths on the CPRR: This is from "Building Oroville Dam wasn't without tragedy." The Chico Enterprise Record, August 17, 2012, by Barbra Arrigoni.
